Connecticut Waters is a tribute to Connecticut’s maritime roots, both past and present. The book takes readers on a nautical journey exploring the many ways Nutmeggers use our lakes, rivers, sounds and shores for industry, education, and recreation. From boat builders to antique, power, and sailing vessels, to lobster shacks, the oyster and fishing industries, historic ferries, nautical arts, lighthouses and islands, charter boats, maritime festivals and celebrations, and more, this book showcases how these waterways have defined our culture and shaped our heritage as a state.
“Caryn B. Davis has absolutely captured the essence and soul of Connecticut in her new book Connecticut Waters. Caryn, through stunning photography and inviting narrative, tells the story of the best place on earth. She has inspired me to see the places I have missed and has made me fall more in love with the ones I know. This is my favorite book about Connecticut ever.” ––Tom Whidden, three-time winner of the America’s Cup, CEO of the North Sails Group, and a member of both the America’s Cup and National Sailing Halls of Fame
